Touch Panel User Interface Design

In ad­di­tion to the ori­en­ta­tion sys­tems, Moni­teurs de­vel­oped in­ter­faces for touch pan­els to con­trol me­dia and room tech­nics in the new In­no­va­tion Cen­ter at the Merck Cam­pus. These con­trol sys­tems were mounted in meet­ing rooms and co-work­ing spaces, as well in the restau­rant, and had to ful­fil dif­fer­ent needs and re­quire­ments, for in­stance to con­trol the mu­sic in the restau­rant or to start a pre­sen­ta­tion in one of the meet­ing rooms.

Pan­els to con­trol the com­pre­hen­sive me­dia tech­nics in the con­fer­ence rooms

Design elements of the orientation system were adapted in the touch panels. The interface, e.g., of light and shutter controls are similar in the different types of rooms, so that employees can find familiar user interfaces in the whole building.

Heterogenous hardware setups and equipment in the different rooms urged for flexible UI-components to get in place compound and implemented by the company macon or Sauter.
